I'm a Celebrity is only two days into its new series, but it's already lost a cast member.

To be fair, most people (at least those over the age of 20) were unaware who Jack Maynard was to begin with, but the YouTube star and vlogger has been removed from the jungle after just one day after some controversial tweets from 2012 emerged.

The Sun report that Maynard - who is 23 tomorrow - had tweeted racist and homophobic slurs as far back as 2011, using the 'n word' in a casual manner, calling people 'retards' and using a derogatory homophobic term, amongst other eyebrow-raising statements.

Although he has yet to comment publicly himself, a spokesperson for him said: "In the last few days Jack has been the subject of a succession of media stories which, given his position as a contestant on 'I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here' - filmed in the Australian jungle, with no contact with the outside world, he has been unable to respond to.

"Since it is only fair that everyone should be aware of any allegations made against them and should also have the right to defend themselves, it was agreed that it would be better to bring him out of the show. Jack agrees with this decision which was made by his representatives and ITV and thanks everyone who has supported him in the show this far."

His replacement on the show has not yet been announced.
